Issue: Table 17 (Spec part 2, 7.5.1.2) discrepancies

Dear all,

While reading Section 7.5.1 [1] and Section 7.5.2 [2] of part 2, it 
seems that Table 17 [3] is not fully in sync with what the SOAP receiver 
might generate.
A SOAP receiver might generate a 400 HTTP Status code either in its Init 
state or in its Receiving state. In the first case, the HTTP response 
contains no SOAP fault and accordingly, the SOAP requestor should 
transition to the Fail state, while in the second case, the HTTP 
response may contain a SOAP fault and if this is the case, the SOAP 
requestor should transition to the Sending+Receiving state.

The proposal is to change the 400 line in Table 17 to take into account 
both these cases:
<proposal>
400  Bad Request

If the media type does not correspond to a SOAP message, indicates a 
problem with the received HTTP request message. This operation SHOULD 
NOT be repeated with the same message content. The message exchange is 
regarded as having completed unsuccessfully.
Instantiated Property       Value
context:FailureReason       "fail:BadRequest"
Next State: Fail

If the media type corresponds to a SOAP message, indicates a problem 
with the received SOAP message. This operation SHOULD NOT be repeated 
with the same message content. The local binding instance continues to 
receive the incoming message.
Instantiated Property       Value
context:FailureReason       "fail:BadRequest"
Next State: Sending+Receiving
</proposal>

Regards,

Hervé.
